Looks like the problem is created by the recent change to libc/Makefile 
where CPPPICFLAGS was changed to be CPICFLAGS.  Reverting this change 
allows my system to build properly.

What mk.conf flags would affect this?  I don't have anything about I8N 
or PIC in my mk.conf, so I don't see how my setup is "special". :-)
